If Zelda and Cora sound too popular for your little one, try out the equally vintage but oh-so-rare Delma. This adorable girl's name was all the rage throughout the 1900s until the '70s, but today, it's a total pearl. Delma is likely a short form for the German name Adelma, meaning "noble protector" and "famous." Its natural star power will inspire baby to reach for the stars when talent show time comes around! If baby has Irish roots, Delma can be a nickname for Fidelma, meaning "faithful."
